The Last Day of Autumn FOTD

Your Muse just got in from the dinner and a movie and decided to make it a rather early night! New York in the winter is NOT a fun place to be! It’s cold and windy and bloody brutal weather for a Muse to be out in!

So she’s home now, comfy in her bed, blogging to you gorgeous ladies!

Today is sadly the last day of Autumn and it’s all down hill from here on out! The snow will be here soon! In celebration of that I did a bit of a Fall-ish look!

Hope you love it!

Cheers and Happy Weekend!
Your defrosting Muse!

The Importance of Piggie Vials

That quite sounds like a disease doesn’t it? Piggie Vial? Oh my it does indeed!

You might (or might not if you happen to be a MAC Whore like the Muse) be wondering what Piggie Vials are! Piggie Vials are actually Pigment Vials which are smaller containers of MAC pigment. You can only get pigment vials around the Holidays (or at least that’s been the case for the last few years) and they normally come sold in sets of five or so!

Now you might be wondering why I am bringing this up in a blog post! Well I think that the importance of Pigment Vials is underestimated and it’s my job to tell you how important they are!

Pigment vials contain 2.5 grams of pigment in one rather cute little vial! Why is this important? MAC Pigments are so pigmented that a little product goes a long way and vials are the perfect solution to not purchasing a large jar of pigment that will take you literally years to get through!

A normal jar of pigment is 7.5 grams in size and is $19.50 while pigment vials are sold normally in lots of 5 for $29.50. That means you’ll get 12.5 grams of pigment for a nice little price plus it’s a variety of colors you’ll receive and enough product that’ll last you ages and ages!

I’m addicted to pigments and as appealing as large pigment jars are I’d love if MAC started offering pigment vials as a regular catalog item! How great would it be to walk up to your MAC counter and have the option of buying a full size jar of pigment or a vial of pigment!

Until that time comes (MAC are you listening? We want more piggie vials!) I adore picking up the Holiday collections with the 5 very cute vials that allow me to have an array of colors for an inexpensive price tag!

MAC Pigment and Glitter Vials

MAC introduced two new pigment sets this year which are a warm and a cool selection for $29.50USD each!

MAC Curiousitease Warm Pigment

MAC Curiousitease Cool Pigment

The moral of the story is if you’re on the fence or you’re new to MAC and you’re feeling overwhelmed by the vast collection of color why not settle for a gorgeous set of pigments!

Now is a great time to get them as they are up and available for the Holiday Season!

MAC Pigments (big or small) are always Muse Approved!
